Butternut Valley American Legion Post 1135

Post History

Butternut Valley American Legion Post 1135 was granted a temporary charter of operation on November 13, 1934. After meeting all the requirements of membership, the Post was granted a permanent charter a year later on October 14, 1935.

Charter members were World War I Veterans. Since that time, membership has added World War II, Korean War, Vietnam War, Lebanon/Grenada, Panama, and Persian Gulf Veterans.

Post 1135 is housed on South Broad Street in Morris, New York where the Post and Auxiliary members hold regular meetings. The facilities are available to community groups for small meetings on request.

Legion activities and programs that enhance the community and its citizens include: an annual Memorial Day parade and program; placement of American Flags on Veterans' graves at Hillington Cemetery and several smaller burial grounds in the Township and adjacent areas; Boys' State program to send two high school junior boys to a week long experience in June with 1,000 other New York State youth at a college campus; the annual oratorical contest nation-wide; Legion baseball teams; and the annual Schoolmasters Banquet in October. The Post and Auxiliary members jointly hold a pancake breakfast each Sunday in November to serve the public.

Membership is open to all Veterans who served our country during the eligibility dates established by Congress.
